U.S. Treasury Secretary's EU contacts on Greek issue

U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew jets into Europe to urge policymakers to keep the Greek rescue on track, there are fears that the International Monetary Fund has derailed country's third bailout.
 
Lew is expected to visit Frankfurt, Berlin and Paris over the next two days for talks on Greece with senior financial officials, including the President of the European Central Bank Mario Draghi and finance ministers of France and Germany.
 
His trip comes at a crucial moment in the Greek crisis, with the country's parliament due to vote later Wednesday on wide-reaching reforms and spending cuts.
 
"The US Treasury Secretary is expected to be engaged immediately in direct dialogue with his counterparts due to exchange views on global economy and Greece's course in the Eurozone," the ministry announced.
